Alexander von Humboldt Foundation for International Climate Protection Fellowship
International Office   Wednesday, October 28, 2020


With the International Climate Protection Fellowships, the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation enables prospective leaders working practically to implement a research-based proposal in the field of climate protection or climate-related resource conservation during a one-year stay in Germany. Up to 15 International Climate Protection Fellowships are granted annually, funded under the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety’s (BMU) International Climate Initiative. The fellowships target prospective leaders from non-European transition and developing countries, who possess extensive work experience outside academia. Candidates draw up their own research-based proposal which they then implement in collaboration with a host in Germany. The Alexander von Humboldt Foundation runs the programme in cooperation with the Federation of German Industry (BDI), the Centre for International Postgraduate Studies in Environmental Management (CIPSEM) at TU Dresden, the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD), the Deutsche Bundesstiftung Umwelt (DBU), the Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) and the Renewables Academy AG (RENAC). The call for applications is conditional upon the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation being granted the relevant funding.

Subjects: Climate Change


The monthly fellowship amount – depending on career stage – is €2,170, €2,470 or €2,670 for fellows. This includes a mobility lump sum and a contribution towards health and liability insurance.
